  7. 7. Achieving the Tipping Point    “most  individuals  evaluate  an  innova-on,  not  on  the  basis  of  scien-fic  research  by  experts,  but  through  the  subjec-ve  evalua-ons  of  near-­‐peers   who  have  adopted  the  innova-on”   Rogers,  E.M.  (1983).  Diffusion  of  innova3ons.  NY:  The  Free  Press.  p262

  9. 9. Frames  of  Change    •  Which  of  these  connects  most  with  the  work   you  do  as  a  leader?  •  How  could  you  use  it  to  reflect  on  your  own   leadership?  •  In  what  ways  could  it  be  used  to  as  part  of   your  design  process  for  change?   Think  -­‐  pair  
  10. 10.  Adap>ve   leadership  is  the   prac>ce  of   mobilising  people   to  tackle  tough   challenges  and   thrive.   Heifetz,  Grashow  &  Linsky,  2009  www.thinkbeyond.co.nz  
  11. 11. Adap-ve  Environments  •  They  contain  a  large  number  of  interac>ng  elements.  •  Informa>on  in  the  system  is  highly  ambiguous,   incomplete,  or  indecipherable.    •  Interac>ons  among  system  elements  are  non-­‐linear   and  >ghtly-­‐coupled  such  that  small  changes  can   produce  dispropor>onately  large  effects.  •  Solu>ons  emerge  from  the  dynamics  within  the  system   and  cannot  be  imposed  from  outside  with  predictable   results.  •  Hindsight  does  not  lead  to  foresight  since  the  elements   and  condi>ons  of  the  system  can  be  in  con>nual  flux.   Perrow,  1986;  Snowden  &  Boone,  2007

  15. 15. In  what  ways  is  your  organisa>on  adap>ve?  What  is  one  small  change   that  would  make  it  more  so?  How   could  you  influence  this?     How  will  you  influence  this?
